The Blount County Sheriff’s Office said Wilson, accused of attempted first degree murder of a police officer, was found in an abandoned home at the 5500 block of Calderwood Highway in south Blount County.

BCSO’s SWAT team, along with Knoxville Police officers and U.S Marshals took Wilson into custody a short time after 3 a.m. Saturday morning.
